is at the white house. jim, let's begin with you in the pentagon now. what is the u.s. military saying about the report that a french jet attacked and destroyed a libyan aircraft? >> well, there were all sorts of conflicting reports from the beginning after a french pilot radioed in to the command aboard the mt. whitney, the u.s. command ship out there in the mediterranean that he had shot down a libyan war plane. at the time, u.s. officials said they could not confirm it and continued to check, but subsequently, it turns out, and again, these are still conflicting reports, that apparently this french pilot shot a libyan airplane of some kind, whether it was a war plenty, whether it was a air,r enivia ple,has tve e, it landed at misratah or was already on the ground. now, of course, what made the first reports very significant is that would have been the first libyan aircraft, military, that would have challenged this no-fly zone. because not a single helicopter or libyan war plane has been in the sky since the u.s. and coalition war planes started to enforce that no-fly zone. but also, beca

can convey a message to the american people why it is consistent with u.s. foreign policy goals? >> i do. we have to keep in mind the uprise negligent middle east - uprising in the middle east lends to developments. in the short run we can't controll the events completely. this is important in the middle east and to abanon the people of libya would have let qaddafi slaughtter his own people and put a damper on the efforts of the youngg people in the middle east and small democrats and those who want to liberalize those societies there. >> even with nato in command, are you concerned that ultimately the pressure will be on the u.s. if qaddafi fights for months? >> i am opposed to putting our own soldiers on the ground. i believe that the coalition that is in place led by nato and not the united states will find the right balance of approaches to support the people in libya and to see that there is a new regime in place and support the spirit of revolution and spirit of change and democratic societies in the middle east . so we have to watch this, and congress has a role to play in advi

outside the reactor. so high that top u.s. environmental officials report that a single dose is enough to cause hemorrhaging. more from osaka, japan. >> reporter: yes, megyn. it is looking serious now in terms of the quantity of radiation emanating from the nuclear plant. it appears that we have significant problems at reactor 2 and reactor 3. hearing there are pools of water in a trench that drains off from the reactor towards the sea. it's about 90 feet from the sea, we believe. and that's perhaps one of the reasons that we're seeing greater contamination off the shore. the information is not entirely cleaand that is because they're not sure exactly where the leak is coming from. the greatest concern is that it's coming from the container vessel, indicating, indeed, that there is a partial meltdown. the meltdown may be temporary, that hopefully they will be able to fill that container area up and keep the rods cool. because the radiation levels are so high, it's difficult for the workers to get in there. if they're able to go in without getting radiation burns, it limits what they ca
odyssey dawn to nato. the united states a huge part of nato? how much is the u.s. still on the hook? who will issue the orders? john bolton is here to go on the record. now, president obama, a few minutes ago. >> the president: gadhafi declared he would show no mercy to his own people if we waited one more day, benghazi, a city nearly the size of charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world. it was not in our national interests to let that happen. i refused to let that happen. in this particular country, libya, at this particular moment, we were faced with the prospect of violence on a horrific scale. we had a unique ability to stop that violence. international mandate for action. a coalition prepared to join us. the support of arab countries. and a plea for help from the libyan people themselves. moreover, america has an important strategic interest in preventing gadhafi from overrunning those who oppose him. a massacre would have driven thousands of additional refugees across libya's borders. putting enormous
in libya. how big of a role will the u.s. play now? are we still in charge? and with war fatigue setting in and criticism from both sides of the aisle, when does the president fully explain what's perhaps, monday or tuesday of next week. >>> plus, fear of spreading terrorism. there were anti-government demonstrations today and in some cases violence in many arab countries, including yemen. thousands turned out calling for the ouster of a u.s. ally. if the president is overthrown, who stops al qaeda in the arabian peninsula from taking over? >>> and there are increasing concerns of spreading radiation from the crippled power plant in japan with even more people now being encouraged to get out of the area, but not ordered. how great is that danger? >>> plus, a little politics with hispanics now making up one of our every six americans and one out of every four children, by the way, how long can republicans be seen as hostile to their interests? the huge implications of the census report on the 2012 presidential election. and finally, what's the more serious candidates to do? how does anyon
the case for this intervention. u.s. interests have to be met if we are going to intervene. u.s. interests can't just mean validating some kind of post american theory of intervention, wherein, we wait for the arab league and the united nations to tell us thumbs up america you can go now and act and get on the -- get in the back of the bus and wait for the french to lead us. that's not inspirational. >> greta: i must confess when i heard reports that gadhafi was saying he would show no mercy to his people and compared them to rats and threatened to go door-to-door, when that was going on, it was so horrible that -- now with 20/20 hindsight, it easy for me to think why is this military action for this humanitarian purpose, when more people are dying in other parts of the world? >> that's a good question. that's the 600 million dollar a day question that is being asked now. because that's the cost incurred by americans as we support the no-fly zone. which of course the no-fly zone the intervention or enactment is turning into more than that. again, disappointing speech. because we didn't get

hear last week, general carter hamm leading the u.s. effort there to enforce the no-fly zone, describing misrata specifically and saying it was very difficult to know exactly where the opposition was, exactly where the government was, exactly where the civilians were and exactly where these heavy weapons were because they are hideing in houses. as we drove out of misrata yesterday we saw soldiers with their vehicles hiding inside buildings, inside buildings. they had driven in through the store fronts and hiding inside the stores and the tanks hiding under trees, so this makes it very, very hard for aircraft to see these heavy weapons and to target them easily without the fear of injuring civilians and that is the challenge that these aircraft flying overhead are facing right now, carol. >> nic robertson reporting live in tripoli, thanks. >>> president obama goes on television to face a war weary nation that would be our own, he says ignoring moammar gadhafi threats of slaughtering civilians would have betrayed our values as americans, but he said using the military to force
